Conversion Workshop Saturdays

EV Folks:

My garage is open to all most Saturdays until the 1995 Ford Probe EV conversion is complete. Feel free to stop by and look, or better yet help out and get greasy (no experience required).

Sat 9/2 9am work plan:
- I have borrowed a trailer from a friend, need to remember to take chains, come-a-long, etc to winch the Probe onto the trailer and tie it down.
- the car is located 2 miles away, need to give the ladies $350 cash, get the paperwork squared away, and load up the car. The car does not run so it will be a chore to get it onto the trailer.
- unload Probe, drain gas tank into F250 truck, drain anti-freeze
- power wash engine and underneath if needed
- remove fuel tank, exhaust, rear seat, hood, prepare engine for removal
- stand around and drink beer

If you are interested, I can send you my contact info.

Here is a weblog I found detailing a Ford Probe conversion (car is a few years older than mine): http://www.evconvert.com/eve/

Here is a file photo (1995 GT pictured, I think mine is an SE)

People should learn more about energy alternatives like electric cars. The new ones coming out are way better than gas cars. One of the main electric car companies, Zap, has delivered more than 100,000 electric vehicles (source: www.zapworld.com). EV’s cost 1 to 3 cents per mile to run, compare that to regular cars!
